Toše Proeski 1981-2007

Toše Proeski, the Macedonian pop singer, died this morning in a motorway accident near Nova Gradiška, Croatia.

Proeski was one of the most popular singers throughout the ex-Yugoslav states, with best-selling albums in Macedonian, Serbian and Croatian. He represented Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004, and regularly won pop festivals in all three countries: in Croatia, he was arguably the most successful singer of his generation from another successor state.

Tomorrow has been proclaimed a day of national mourning in Macedonia.

This singer had so beautiful voice that I think his family and his own country - Macedonia should certainly protect his genetic material. If you heard him singing only once - you will understand what I am talking about. Tremendous loss ...
